So this week has been hilarious. It has ranged from having a distinguished Parisian elderly gentleman who now lives in England have the following conversation with me:
He: Where did you study?
Me: Yeshiva University.
He: Where is your scarf?
Me: Oh, I'm not married yet.
He: Scarves are only for married women?
Me: (insert entire conversation about headcoverings and Judaism)
to having a lady mistake me for a Bais Yaakov girl. She inquired as to whether I knew an apartment where none of the girls watched television because there was a girl who wanted to move to such an apartment. I said I'd keep an eye out and almost died laughing later (not about the request, but about the fact that she mistook me for a Bais Yaakov girl. Clearly I am adele in disguise). And that's to say nothing of the fact that I had such a party during Shabbat. Firstly, the Glueck Center is beautiful and there's nothing I like better than the Main Beis davening. Secondly, I was invited to CS Louis for a meal! And our conversations rocked. Plus, there was the whole debacle of too much baking powder in the cake I made, which equalled hilarity c.f. Anne of Green Gables and the liniment scene. Then there was getting to go to Daughter of God and The Man With the Colored Coat for a meal (and they had hung up my painting!) Plus I visited The Golden-Haired Girl.
And best of all...
Seventeen people plus Menachem Butler came to my shiur! Happy Chana. (And, if I may take pride, Menachem Butler liked it. Huzzah.) Plus some lady I don't know asked me if I was a dancer. Because I dance and am very theatrical when I speak.
Here's what I was thinking re: the shiur. I could type it up. But why do that? It'll take forever and no one will read it. Thus, why not just take over the SkyCaf and/or some other forum one night this week and give the same shiur to everyone who couldn't come i.e. the men? Then it shall be worth everyone's while. Let me know if you a) want to come and b) have a suggestion for a forum. I'll be in Queens this weekend; maybe I can just give the shiur in Queens.
